Motorists that use southbound Highway 61 into Duluth via London Road will have to use an alternate route or detour starting Wednesday August 8th.

MnDOT is alerting motorists that flood-related culvert work will start on that section of road - a project that is expected to last into late August.

Specifically:

Motorists on the southbound Highway 61 expressway will be detoured onto Superior Street to 54th Avenue East and then back onto Highway 61/London Road.

Motorists traveling north on Highway 61/London Road will not be detoured, however they will encounter a few traffic shifts within the construction area.
